    That's a pretty tall order for Ngannou. Overeem is a savvy veteran who has not shown signs of declining skills. (not talking about chin)

    This fight will come down to Ng's chin. Overeem will hit him hard if Ng's chin holds up he can win the fight.

    With that said I'll pick Alistair for the win.

    What about AO's chin though? He's gotta move and he will get hit at some point.

    AO has heavy hands,

    and your power is last to go.

    50/50 IMO.

    People talk about Horsejuicemeatereem's chin and forget about that folding chair of a heart he's got. The moment Francis touches him clean he's going to look for the lights.

    Id still take Overeem at this point but Ngannou is legit. If his cardio proves decent and he can land on AO i could see a win.

    I feel AO will be cautious and pick up a UD.
